About Our Pastor
Pastor Charles Curtiss Burnett-Morrow came to Dallas in December of 2001. He started the work known today as The ONE Church In Christ Jesus (aka Grace Oasis) on Easter Sunday, 2002.
Pastor Charles was born and raised in the Pentecostal movement and received his call to preach the Gospel at the early age of 8. He received the baptism of the Holy Ghost at a very early age as well. Pastor Charles has benefited from the ministries and examples of many great men of God. At the age of 12, Pastor Charles' calling was confirmed prophetically by the world renown Pentecostal preacher, Dr. C.M. Ward. At the age of twelve, young Charles began a children's ministry, teaching and entertaining as JiG-Gil (Jesus is God - God is love) the Gospel clown, which was very well received throughout Pentecostal churches in Southern New England. He conducted children's crusades, Vacation Bible Schools, and youth evangelistic meetings during which many young people received the gift of the Holy Ghost. His pastor at that time, Bro John Harmon, thought so much of his children's ministry that he appointed Charles as the director of the Children's Church program in his home church. He also ministered weekly in two nursing homes on behalf of this church during this same period of time and he continues to love and faithfully serve in nursing home ministry to this day, conducting weekly church services in a Dallas nursing home every Sunday afternoon for nearly five years now.
In response to the leading of the Lord, sixteen year old Charles moved to Texas. He initially stayed with a great aunt and uncle in Fort Worth, eventually finding a place for himself in a nearby apartment. During this time Charles became involved with the Riverside Church of God (Cleveland, TN) in Fort Worth. His time with this great church proved a great training ground for his future pastoral ministry. To this day he considers pastor J.T. Gilliam as one of his most valuable and memorable ministry mentors.
At the age of nineteen, after going through a ministerial internship program in the Church of God (Cleveland, TN) he began working as a church planter and started two churches on behalf of this fine organization. His subsequent churches have all been independent, non-denominational ministries. He has done a good deal of evangelistic work and has ministered throughout the country, preaching in various denominational and non-denominational churches across America (UPC, PAW, ALJC, A/G, C/G, C/G of Prophecy, COGIC, AME, etc). He has served as a pastor in communities in his home state of Connecticut (twice), Georgia, Pennsylvania, New York City, and Texas (three times). He hopes and plans to remain in Dallas until the Lord calls him home or the trump of God blows.
